Monetary policy

Ngā kaupapa pūtea

We use monetary policy to maintain price stability and support maximum sustainable employment.

Upcoming announcements

Monetary Policy Statements (MPS) and Monetary Policy Review (MPR) announcements are made to financial markets at 2pm (NZST) and then to the news media, and via Twitter, the website and email.

The Financial Stability Report (FSR) is released at 9am.

We reserve the right to make changes if required due to unexpected developments. In that unlikely event, we would give the markets and the media as much warning as possible.
